Big Warehouse Type Stores Make Me Sick
Whine  |   Link

I don't know why but whenever I enter a store that is full to the brim of goods I get really nauseous. I remember a recent trip to Home Depot and even Z Gallery and I just felt like throwing up. I don't know if it is the off-gases of new goods or places with lots of stuff gets me all dizzy. Maybe it's like a reverse vertigo. I remember a few years ago I had difficulty going up stairs. I would have to grip the railing and stare hard for each step. Perhaps it's just nature's way of telling me not to go shopping. Sometimes I even get overwhelmed stepping into the department that has a major sale like when Nordstrom's has their half-yearly or anniversary sale, lots of racks out and lots of people. Strange, I think maybe that's why I don't really like shopping.
